We're only a week and a half into the New Year and already Connecticut has its latest millionaire.

The lucky winning ticket was sold at A1 Quick and Easy on the Boston Post Road in Waterford. The lucky numbers that hit were 4-14-21-22-24-25, and the payout was worth millions.

So far, no winner has come forward to claim the jackpot, but whoever that winner may be has 180 days to claim their money. By the way, the store that sold the winning ticket will also receive some cash. The commission on a ticket like that will pay the proprietor a cool $10,000.

When it comes to lucky winners in Connecticut, according to ctlottery.org, the last time the state had a big Powerball winner was back in June of 2012 when a Seymour resident nailed the big grand prize of $60 million dollars. The largest Powerball Jackpot winner ever in the state was back in November of 2011 when a Greenwich resident scored a $254 Million Dollar jackpot.
